Travel to the pubs and watering holes of one of Baltimore's oldest neighborhoods to enjoy a few drinks and hear some scary stories from the folks at Baltimore Ghost Tours.
You can get tater tots as an appetizer or alongside any of the well-crafted sandwiches in various states of loaded-ness. The menu ranges from bar food to standards to more ambitious entrees.
A unique movement and wellness ceneter specializing in Pilates, Pilates based training, Yoga, Bellydance, Acupuncture, Massage Therapy and much more.
In the mood for authentic Mexican cuisine for only a few tamales? Stop by El Taquito, a quaint Fells Point restaurant where Mexico's colors fly proudly. Start the night off right with the chips with salsa and guacamole, followed by a choice of traditional burritos, fajitas, tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, or a variety of specials that are served with rice, beans, and tortillas. Most entrées are your choice of beef, chicken, pork, or beans and cheese. For you (very) brave souls, they offer lamb, beef tongue, and rabbit to fill your tortillas. You won't need many greenbacks, but they don't take the plastic.
Restaurant in the basement of the Admiral Fell Inn.
Leadbetters Tavern focuses on live music with two shows nightly featuring local and regional musicians playing blues, folk, guitar heavy folk, and other roots music. Never a cover.
Liquid Earth is the place for a shot of wheat grass or a fruit-, veggie-, and vitamin-filled beverage. It is also the home of some of the most heavenly meat-free sandwiches ever to grace our cakeholes. The sacred submarine--crunchy Italian bread stacked high with baked tofu, roasted onions, mushrooms, cheese, pickles, and cherry hots--is so large it usually ends up being lunch and dinner. The meatless muffaletta is another favorite. And Liquid Earth's vegan cheese--which can be substituted for the cow variety on any sandwich--is so creamy you won't believe its dairy free. Just don't hit up Liquid Earth if you're in a hurry; this place is too laid back for rush orders.
Takeout and restaurant serving such Central American staples as tamales, papusas, tacos, baleadas and tortas.
Max's offers a huge beer selection, multiple floors of fun with foosball tables, pool tables, and loads of television screens showing sports. In addition, Max's has martini and cigar menus along with a regular tavern food menu.
This two-level "pastisserie and bistro" from the Kali's Court people rocks yummy food at moderate prices. Lovely entrees like pistachio-encrusted lamb chops and hanger steak are priced below $20. The wine-list and service are spot-on.
Mobtown's oldest sushi purveyors have two full-service restaurants: in a downtown townhouse and on the water in Fells Point. The view's better in Fells, but parking is much easier downtown; the service and sushi are great at both. Take off your shoes, fold your legs under a low table, and let the clean flavors of raw fish rid you of the nasty. People say the tempura is good, and there are all manner of complicated rolls on the menu, if you're into that sort of thing, but with seafood this fresh, why spoil it? Just chase the yellowtail with sake, and then order some more yellowtail.
When Pierpoint opened in 1989, chef Nancy Longo's little restaurant created quite a local stir. For the first time Maryland food--specifically, Chesapeake cuisine--was being treated not just seriously but reverentially. Seventeen years later the crowds might have thinned, but Pierpoint is still quietly concentrating on dishes that showcase the freshest and most excellent of local ingredients. If it's been a while since your last visit, you'll be relieved to know that the smoked crab cakes are still on the menu, and the Silver Queen corn chowder still reigns as the house soup.
The two best reasons to go are the free parking lot (a Fells Point rarity) and the handsome, soaring brick-and-wood space, which handily accommodates large crowds. The menu has undergone what looks like a complete overhaul since City Paper last visited. There are now, along with the sandwiches and salads, more bona fide entrées, and the fine steak salad and yummy thin-crust pizza are still in place, but what's become of those fabulous panini? On the other hand, some of the clunkers have vanished, too. Popular Sunday brunch features jumbo lump crab hash and fried steak and eggs.
What fgoes better with a harbor view than all manner of raw, steamed, and prepared-otherwise seafood, which highlights what this gregarious spot dishes out.
Authentic Mexican eatery and carry-out. Sample corn tortillias made daily and tacos piled high with grilled meats. Hearty soups, chips and homemade salsa also available.
Just when you thought Fells Point was saturated with noisy, loud taverns, along comes a place that convinces you there's always room for one more. The food here is excellent, and the cushy dining space upstairs (open Thursday through Saturday nights) compensates for the noisy, awkward seating downstairs. Big-ticket items include well-cooked steaks and seafood pasta dishes. Light fare focuses on crafty quesadillas (which are half-price on Mondays), with plenty of vegetarian options. The historic 18th-century building that houses the Waterfront Hotel has been gutted back to its handsome brick skeleton. Check out the bacon-wrapped barbecue shrimp appetizer served on thick slabs of Monterey Jack toast and the excellent, friendly service.
